The study also highlights the constructs of current linguistic theory, arguing for distinctive features and the notion 'onset' and against some of the claims of Optimality Theory and Usage-based accounts.

Definitionen und Termini [Definitions and Terms]
Quantitative Studien zur Konstituierung von Fachwortschatz [Quantitative Studies on the Formation of Terminology]
Terms and terminologies are central topics of terminology research, yet strategies of terminologization - that is, the introduction of terminological systems to specialized texts - have received scant attention to date. Using examples from DIN 2330 and Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, this study examines the quantitative aspects of terminologization. The findings of this new approach can be applied to other texts, whether of a prescriptive and appellative or descriptive and discursive nature.
